When it comes to winter nails nothing beats a classic red, but there are only so many shades of rouge you can play with before boredom hits. Metallic nails are nothing new, but admittedly I was a little late to the game, mainly as I had no idea where to start.
Thankfully Topshop have come to the rescue with a range of metallic polishes and lipsticks for Autumn/Winter. And while metallic lipstick is most definitely a step too far for me (I tried it, it really didn’t look good,) the polishes strike the perfect balance between chic and shiny. Slightly more grown up than the glitter nail (and less tricky to remove.)
Topshop‘s metallic nails come in silver, gold and rose gold all of which look great. The silver (Cryogenic) are my faves for now, helping me to channel a modern mod look, but what makes them a must-have is that they’re easily dressed up or down. The only problem is that you’ll need the patience of a saint because they take forever to dry, that aside, they’ve easily overtaken white as the perfect winter nail.
